A random post about cinema, movies and clichés! Part.1

I've seen movies. You've seen movies. Everyone has seen movies. And.. I don't know about you, but I am a movie-cholic. I can watch movies all day long, and I won't be bored- except that I'm gonna have a terrible headache. This weekend, I saw 7 movies. I actually watched three horror films (it was by accident) on Friday, 1 drama on Saturday and 3 movies yesterday (1 comedy, 1 horror movie and 1 drama). So, I guess I can talk about many clichés that appear in most films.

Horror Films

1)The idiots who walk alone in the dark when the killer is inside the house.
2)The same idiots that can't stay in silence and say: "Hellooo, is anyone there?" (You dumbass, it's the killer!)
3)The same old idiots that hear a noise and go after him. Why don't they just hide inside the closet?
4)The killer always knows where the victims are. Even inside a house full of people.
5)Even if someone shoots the killer, he never dies. Instead, he gets up and kill the idiots.
6)Teen girls that expose their tutus and think the killer is a joke.
7)During a party or something, no one notices the killer walking around the house with a knife, or in a ridiculous costume (Scream much?)
8)Someone has seen people getting killled, but no one believes them.
9)Mirros always make us going "Ohh now the killer is behind her".
10)The killer runs like a ghost behind the protagonists. (It's usually the scene with the "is anyone there" phrase.)
11)As Sidney said, the bitch never tries to escape through the door. She just goes to the second floor.
12)Even if she tries to escape, the killer has some kind of teleportation abilities and appears behind the door.
13)Usually it starts with a joke and everyone gets killed in the end.
14)The most coward girl kills the killer. (credit to jamasian_man, imdb) 
15) The survivors walking in slow motion like heroes. (credit to liquid_stone14, imdb)
16)Even if someone who is getting killed screams for help, no one will notice, and the ones who notice will probably be drunk.
17)Someone always knows about your secrets.
18)There's always that one girl that the killer can't kill immediately. He let her talk, run, beg.
19)The murders in houses always take place in huge houses, with two floors, 79 bedrooms and 19 bathrooms. 
20)In these houses, the killer goes the wrong way, the idiots make some kind of noise, killer comes, idiots run, killer runs.
And these are some of the clichés I could think about. Do you have any other clichés on your mind?

Face Candy Couture eyeshadows! Review!

  Its been a couple of months since I ordered and received these eyeshadows, and still haven't reviewed them, mostly because it didn't happen to wear them, so that I have a complete opinion about them. But yesterday, I tried them on and decided to make a post, featuring Face Candy Couture.
  Face Candy Couture is an online store where you can get many unique, natural eyeshadows that combine great quality and the most important: they are affordable as hell. Most of their eyeshadows, which you can check *here* cost about $5, and you can also take advantage of some good deals: 3 for $10, 8 for $20 and so on. FCC and Shantle Shipp are also kind enough to let you try their products: they are offering 5 (!) free sample eyeshadows. All you have to do is send an email and let her know you are interested. You can do that *here* . When I decided to ask for some samples, I could choose which eyeshadows they would send me. But as I see on their website now, they will send you some products of their choice, which is fine, as the eyeshadows are really stunning! The package arrived quickly and Shantle was sweet to communicate and polite.
  So, I ordered 5 eyeshadows: Damask Grey, Fall, Chill, Pinecone, Seed.
Damask Grey is a grey/silver eyeshadow, shimmery and shiny. It's really pigmented and I don't think there is a big fallout. I didn't have the chance to have it on my eyes for many hours, but the eyeshadow seems steady. [FCC says it's "a sexy grey with silver shimmer"].

Fall has a really interesting color: brown, with dark purple and copper undertones. This is what it looks like to me. Again, shiny and pigmented! [FCC described it as "brown with deep burgundy and copper undertones"].


Chill seems to me a very dark blue with some brown undertones, shimmery and pigmented enough. I really liked this one, as I enjoy it when I can't explain what the exact color is. [FCC described it as a "midnight sea with shimmer".]

Pinecone is a simple brown (ha! that was easy :P) color with a bit of shimmer inside. Out of these 5 eyeshadows, I think it's the only one that wasn't that pigmented. Maybe I just didn't work with it very well, so I have to give it another shot. [FCC says it's "a perfect brown coco pinecone color"].

Last but not least, Seed is a bright yellow, with mustard/gold/orange undertones. Extremely shiny and pigmented, perfect for summer and intense nights or days out. This colour seems to have consumed the whole sun! [FCC says it's "mustard yellowish color with an orange undertone"]. 


And this is how all of them look like: (from the left to the right: Damask Grey, Fall, Chill, Pinecone, Seed)


I know this one is blurry, but I wanted you to see the shiny part of these eyeshadows!
 All 5 eyeshadows are very easy to work with, very pigmented (my only doubts go to Pinecone), shimmery (Damask Grey and Seed are ultra shimmery!). Face Candy Couture also encourages us to use this natural cosmetics not only on our eyes, but also on cheeks, lips and nails. I haven't used them this way yet (also, I think gray and brown would not be good on cheeks haha), but there are some colors, like Romantique, Pink Lemonade, Glitz that could ne used as blushes. Still, too shimmery for a blush.


How do you feel about these eyeshadows?
Are you going to give them a shot?

NOTD! Green for Earth Day, my new Sigma brush and some random!

Nahh, I'm a liar! I didn't paint my nails green because of Earth Day. These pictures were taken some days ago, but since yesterday I had green on again, I decided to post them!
I bought this nail polish a couple of weeks ago for about 2€ or $2.8. Pretty good, right? And my opinion? For that money, it's really good! These photos were taken after two coats and I think it does a great job. At first, I painted my nails at night, and I thought it was a dark green. But the next day, I saw its true beauty! It was really shimmery, shiny and bright! I was staring at my nails all the time, haha! Take a look at the pics (ignore my awful nails and my even more awful hangnails!!)




Can you see the brightness of that one? I know, the last picture is kinda blurry, but I just want you to see the shiny part of it!

Secondly, I'd love to tell you that I became a Sigma affiliate! If you click on the pictures at the right sidebar, you can visit their official site and check out all the amazing products! And don't forget to use the code 66838 at the checkout!

Anyway, Sigma was kind enough to send me a Sigma brush through the affiliate program, the E25 travel size blending brush! I've only tried it once and I was really satisfied! Soft hair, great size, easy to work with! I haven't washed it yet so I will keep the proper review for later! Here are some pictures for now:






Oh, and something I always forgot

I want to thank so much the Born Pretty Store and Jessica for sending me the Hello Kitty nail stamping plate and Face Candy Couture for letting me order some eyeshadows samples! You can do it too! I will talk about it tomorrow!

And a BIG thank you to aaall my new followers! :D

How are you guys?
Everything good?
Have a great month and a fabulous weekend!
E.
